James Bond (a.k.a. Daniel Craig) stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Wednesday night to promote Spectre, the iconic spy’s latest adventure, and he brought along a rather unexpected look at the film. The bit began with Colbert taking Craig to task for Bond’s history of needlessly destroying the beautiful cars that he’s given to drive, a criticism that Craig promised would be addressed in the new 007 movie. Insisting that the issue would be handled with “A certain amount of gritty realism,” the actor introduced a “clip” from Spectre as proof.
The scene begins in Rome, as Bond races into a budget rental car company called RentalCo in desperate need of a getaway vehicle now that he’s inevitably destroyed his Aston Martin. Unfortunately for 007, RentalCo agent Randy (Colbert) doesn’t really care that Bond is trying to elude a bunch of assassins (“We all have things to do,” he sighs). From there, MI6’s top spy learns the hard way that getting a new set of wheels isn’t quite as easy in the civilian world — seeing Craig desperately try (and fail) to stop himself from laughing is something you won’t be able to find in any actual scene from Spectre, which opens in theaters Friday.
